The 10 Best Women's Ski Boots for the 2024 Winter

By: Jordan Berde: Ski Buyer | September 24, 2023

 

The most important, and often most overlooked part of your ski setup is the boots. When choosing ski boots keep in mind that with a well-fitted, high-performing pair of boots, you will feel better and ski better on the mountain. But the best ski boots for one person are not always the same as the best ones for someone else. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the best women's ski boots for 2023 with something different in mind for each type of rider. Whether you’re a park rat, a backcountry adventurer, or a weekend warrior, we’ve got a pair of boots that will make your days in the snow that much better.

New This Year:

A big focus we’ve seen among ski brands this year for women's ski boots is BOA entering the ski boot game! A BOA dial now exists and replaces the lower buckles on several models of boots. Salomon, Atomic, K2, and Fischer will have a BOA boot. As we call out in our 2024 ski trends, BOA ensures even foot pressure, enhanced accessibility to overlap boots with adjustable width, and a precise forefoot fit for improved riding. Lange introduces the Shadow, which replaces the RX boot and incorporates a dual pivot design. Additionally, overall sizing is becoming more inclusive, with more brands offering stiffer boots in size 22.5. Lots of neutral earth tones dominate the colorways this season.

Salomon S/Pro Supra BOA 105 Ski Boots - Women's 2024

Salomon S/Pro Supra BOA 105

Here's something you don't see every day - a brand new closure system in alpine ski boots hasn't really happened since Henke introduced the first buckle boot back in the 1960s. The Salomon S/Pro Supra BOA 105 Ski Boots not only rock the new Boa®, which brings a new level of comfort to wider feet and taller insteps, but instead of leather they are built of Custom Shell HD heat-moldable Polyurethane, making a whole new world of custom fitting available to skiers with anything but average-shaped feet. The S/Pro Supra Boa® 105 has the perfect flex for advanced to expert skiers who don't need the stiffest boot out there and want a versatile, all-mountain/all conditions flex.

Cassidy, Product Content Writer: "These boots offer the drive and rebound for hard charging skiers. The Salomon S/Pro Supra BOA 105 W is the most comfortable and supportive boot I've tried."

Lange Shadow 115 LV GW Ski Boots - Women's 2024

Lange Shadow 115 LV GW

A revolutionary new design in overlap boot technology delivers an even smoother and more progressive flex in the Lange Shadow 115 LV GW Ski Boots. By dropping the locked out portion of the spine with the traditional 2 bolts and instead using a Suspension Blade design that fastens at both the ankle and sides of the heel, the new Shadow frees up the flex at the limits without sacrificing top end resistance or snow feel. That translates to better skiing anywhere you point your skis, with a silky and vibration absorbing ride you'll have to experience to believe.

K2 Mindbender 115 BOA Alpine Touring Ski Boots - Women's 2024

K2 Mindbender 115 BOA Alpine Touring

You've heard about the BOA revolution in alpine and hybrid boots for a while now, and it's here for real in the K2 Mindbender 115 BOA Alpine Touring Ski Boots. Naysayers have pooh-poohed the idea of Boa for skiing, but once you crank one down over your own foot you'll be a believer - the BOA Fit System really does distribute pressure more evenly over the top of the foot, making long days and snugger fits that much better. The new closure system is just the whipped cream and cherry on top; the classic Mindbender 115 boot lies under it all, with the best comfort-to-performance ratio in the business and a great skiing TPU and Pebax® construction that won't let you down.

Shelby, Sales Associate: "The BOA is a very interesting addition to ski boots, one that I think will take some time to perfect. It does give more precise control over snugness in the forefoot/instep, but will not change the heel hold. The Mindbender continues to be a classic hybrid boot, meant for people who ski resorts and do some shorter backcountry trips."
